Set your goals and everyday do something (even the smallest something) to achieve them. I have a goal of being able to do a pull up on my own. At least three days a week I stop at a park while running on one of my trails. With a little help from my legs I do
3 sets of 20 pull ups. I feel myself moving closer and closer to my goal.
